I use the vanilla yogurt with a banana, ice, flax seed and some Peanut Butter in a smoothie in the morning.  I put it in a cup with a lid… could you do something like that?

I use plain yogurt as a substitute in anything that calls for mayo or cream cheese, but that’s just because those gross me out!

It makes a good, lower-fat substitute for sour cream (especially the really thick, Greek-style yogurt). I use it like that with Mexican food.

If you ever make spicy Indian or Middle Eastern dishes (lentil soups and stews, etc.) a dollop of yogurt often makes them taste really rich and creamy, and cuts the spiciness a little bit.

Use it in place of sour cream in chili, tacos, baked potatoes.  Use it to make fruit smoothies.  Mix with fruit, honey or peanut butter then freeze it for a healthy frozen snack. There are also all kinds of recipes you can find that use it like Indian dishes.

Tsatzki sauce! Grate some cucumber and chop some dill and mince some garlic and mix! It’s a GREAT lowfat dip for veggies!

I love plain yogurt. I salt mine…yes, I know that’s weird.

Mix it with some Parmesan cheese, garlic and salt and pepper. Then put it over chicken and bake! It’s super good and keeps the chicken moist!

I use it in place of sour cream. You could also make dressings with it, particularly ranch dressing. Most of the time, those call for mayo+ sour cream or yogurt, but I’ve made them without the mayo when it’s not on hand, and it still turns out great.

I usually make tikka masala, my Fiance loves it with roti bread (also super easy to make).
